Cyanotype process - Possible confusion

 
Cyanotypes are not the only blue prints. Other possibilities include:
  • Photomechanical reproductions in blue inks,
  • Blue-toned silver gelatine prints
  • Carbon prints using blue pigments
  • Gum bichromate prints using blue pigments
Cyanotypes
  • are always matt surfaced.
  • The image is clearly in the paper fibres, not on a layer on top of the paper.
  • The colour is a pure blue or greenish blue
